Her attorney, Ricky Morris, Jr., says his client was crying and very upset about the overnight stay in jail. He says she is innocent of the theft by receiving stolen property charges.
Kaulbach told the court on Monday that she didn't realize that her partner's 17-year-old son had stolen the items from neighbors.
"I wouldn't have bought tires for one of them if I had thought it was stolen and I wouldn't have left them on the property if I thought they were stolen," Kaulbach said.
Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Lawson said that Kaulbach had the responsibility to dig deeper, especially after a Clayton County police officer told the captain that he suspected the jon boat was stolen.
Kaulbach's attorney was angered by the charges.
"I think there is some type of vendetta about their sexual orientation in this neighborhood where they live. With an old established neighborhood, they don't like these two ladies moving in their neighborhood with a different lifestyle," said Morris.
Asked if he thought this was a case of discrimination, Morris replied, "I do and I intend to prove it."
Lawson responded to Morris' allegation of discrimination by saying, "There is nothing more preposterous. That doesn't even merit an answer. That's ridiculous."
Kaulbach could be released from jail late on Tuesday afternoon.
